Episode 1058: Martin O’Neill Stokes Talks, Roy’s Decision, Xavi’s Cult Culture, Arsene’s Death Throes
When is a contract agreement not really a contract agreement? When it’s not signed… Martin O’Neill agreed a new contract with the FAI back in October, yet never quite got around to crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s… blood in the contractual water that has excited the senses of a big shark in Stoke City.
Keane to leave too if O’Neill joins Stokehttps://t.co/DYnr05UuR0

If O’Neill does join Stoke, is this a stunning blow to Irish football, or the chance for a much-needed reboot? And why would Roy Keane take an assistant manager’s job with Stoke ahead of being Ireland’s big boss?
Miguel Delaney and Andrew Mangan join us to discuss the O’Neill situation and also to analyse what is happening to Arsenal in what seem to be the last few months of the Arsene Wenger era. Are there any reasons to be optimistic?
Lots to discuss on the podcast today, including the FA Cup defeat, Arsene Wenger’s future, why young players at Arsenal impress at first then hit the wall, and lots more with @YankeeGunner.
